Our 2015 Conference Success with almost 100 attendees
Date: November 15, 2015
Los Angeles, CA
The Lesbian and Gay Psychotherapy Association of Southern California, Inc. (LAGPA) announces its Twentieth Annual LGBTQI Psychotherapy Conference. The conference is a one-day event co-hosted and co-sponsored by Antioch University Los Angeles (AULA) and the Masters in Psychology/Clinical Psychology LGBT Specialization. The conference is being held Sunday November 15, 2015 in Culver City, CA at AULA and presents academic research and expertise on LGBTQI issues and concerns to professionals working with these clients in their psychotherapy practices. The conference is designed to meet the educational needs of psychiatrists, psychologists, LCSW, LMFT, MSW, CAADAC Certified and Registered addiction professionals, interns, and students of psychology, and earns continuing education credits from APA, BBS, and CAADAC. Approximately 100 working professionals are expected to attend.
For our twentieth anniversary conference, we wanted a truly special speaker. Lauren D. Costine, Ph.D., is not only a graduate of AULA and past board member of LAGPA, but her soon-to-be released book—Lesbian Love Addiction: Understanding the Urge to Merge and How to Heal When Things Go Wrong—establishes her as a leading expert in the field. Besides being one of the founding members of The LGBT Specialization in Clinical Psychology at AULA in 2006, she is currently the Chief Clinician of BLVD Treatment Centers - an intensive outpatient treatment center based in Hollywood, CA - where she founded their LGBTQ-Affirmative Track – one of the first of its kind on the West Coast. Dr. Costine is a recognized expert in LGBT-Affirmative Psychotherapy and pioneer in Lesbian-Affirmative Therapy.
